Junkyard Gems

There is nothing like coming across a wayside junkyard nestled deep in the Appalachian Mountains while traveling in Pennsylvania. Following up on the incredible Volkswagen graveyard, this junkyard is far smaller with only a handful of vehicles but every bit as photogenic.

Visible from the road and nestled up against a tree is a classic Willys Jeep Station Wagon. Built by Willys from 1946 to 1965, it was the first mass-market all-steel station wagon. Domestically, it was replaced by the Jeep Wagoneer. Despite 300,000 being produced, few exist on the road today.

Another relic at the junkyard is the second generation Ford F-100. Built between 1953 and 1956, the half-ton pickup truck boasted larger quarters, an improved engine, and an updated chassis from its debut model.
